Kam Knight returns to drill in on the biology of concentration and distraction – at a really key time when many of us find ourselves looking for actionable ways to address the uncertainty of the world. He shares why concentration is so difficult due to competing areas of the brain, why we get fixated on threats and opportunities – real or perceived – and how social media has engineered to tap right into that primal instinct. Kam provides techniques to exercise and build concentration, tools to turbo boost it, and ways to manage distractions and environments to support concentration.

“It’s really important to understand that our unconscious has evolved to prioritize certain activities over others. Inherently those things become more engaging and that’s where our focus shifts.”

– Kam Knight

Kam Knight is a coach, speaker, and author of several best-selling books in the area of mental performance such as memory, concentration, and productivity. Over the past 15 years he has dedicated his life to understanding the secrets of the mind and how to optimize its performance.

“Threats or dangers, whether perceived or real, will draw our attention. We live in a reality where threats are all around. They include physical threats, social threats and threats to our resources such as food, water, clothing and money. When any of these are at risk the mind can’t help but fixate on the issue until it’s resolved.

– Kam Knight


Kam Knight founded MindLily.com to bring together radical, revolutionary, and cutting-edge tips and techniques to help people enhance their mental abilities and bring a flow of success in their lives.

Kam takes on the challenge of enhancing your mental and personal performance by understanding that as humans, we have all these mechanisms and processes going on inside our minds and bodies. By understanding these processes, you can make them work for you, instead of against you. Kam has spent decades learning and understanding these mechanisms and processes.

In his free time, when not writing or teaching, Kam enjoys globetrotting, having traveled to nearly 100 countries around the world. His adventures include diving with hammerhead sharks in the Galapagos, swimming with a whale shark in Honduras, biking the Death Road in Bolivia, hiking the tallest mountain range in Africa, sleeping in the world’s oldest rainforest in Malaysia, and climbing over a dozen active volcanoes.

The COVID pandemic may mean you have more time and flexibility or maybe you have even greater commitments but what we all have is an opportunity – an opportunity for a reset, to reprioritize, to shed what’s not working, and to double down on what’s most important. That’s where Performance Kickstart comes in.

A year ago the Man of Mastery brand launched, building a loyal tribe of men who are dedicated to mastering themselves in service to their families, businesses, and communities. This training course is the first I’ve offered to the public and in it will be pulling back the curtain on the wins, the obstacles, and the lessons. You’ll get direct access in weekly live video sessions, assignments, challenges, and accountability. All of this is designed to help you take immediate action and kickstart the changes at least part of you already knows are needed to get back in alignment or level up your performance.

WARNING: Simple and easy aren’t the same thing. Change takes work. Are you ready? These tools come straight from some of the grittiest guys out there – ordinary men doing the extraordinary. You owe it to yourself and those you care about to realize your full potential, how you show up and perform every single day.
